"38 miscellaneous flies from Fred Evans (if I counted correctly, LOL!)."

Good to hear the package got home to 'Mother.' The 'Big Ones' are Deer Hair surface 'skaters' for Steelhead/Atlantic Salmon, the 'Buzzer's' are for still water. Give the Ladies a choice of what/where/when/for what.

This morning I consolidated the flies that have come in so far, into a few boxes and I'm going to send this off to Pam for the Utah Casting for Recovery retreat in Sept. We still have a bunch of flies coming in, and I haven't been to the post office in a couple days, but I didn't want to risk sending them all in at one time. If I counted correctly we have 417 flies or 34.75 dozen (that doesn't count the two engraved wooden fly boxes and flies that hariwind530 (Jerry) is donating and we still have a bunch of flies coming in. I'm just floored with the overwhelming support that the forum has shown! Kudos to all you guys that stepped up and donated a few flies!

Well done everyone! Larry, thanks for being the designated bombee and getting them sent to Mrs. Fysh.

I hope to see some photos of smiling faces and the flies being put to good use.

Jay: Good point, I'll ask Pam to get us some photos from the retreat, I'm sure everyone would love to see those smiling faces!

If that'll work, shoot me a PM with where to send them.
Jay: Your Spiders and hoppers arrived today! Thanks, much appreciated, that gals at the Utah CGR Retreat will really enjoy those flies!

Larry, a thought I've been tossing about in my mind (as limited as that may be) and will 'toss out.' "Casting for Recovery" is a totally unique program that just 'works.' Guys Butt out, well, you may do the cooking, but then 'get lost.'

My thought.

Outstanding group, out standing results, understanding needs.

FIRST! A direct Corporate sponsor ship is a "Pandora's Box" you may NOT want to open. BUT if the 'Ladies' could be 'encouraged' to join the Forum and contribute, what might they get for the next 'Clave? (For context, I've been a group supporter since 2000. Stumbled across the reference by accident.)

So what's in in for the 'Ladies?' Continued interest in fly fishing, instructfull information on 'where from here,' 'I'm thinking about fishing there, what do you think?' A dozen other things cross my mind.

"Not a hand out, but a hand up." We've all been there........ And who better than them?

Frederick A. Evans

Default Re: Utah Casting for Recovery Retreat Needs Help

I received flies from Oarfish (22 1/2 dozen and five fly boxes, care of the fly donation program Glcaddis was offering), 1 dozen hoppers from Williamhj and 2 dozen spiders and 8 hoppers from Jaybo41. If I counted correctly that brings us to 60 dozen flies. That should hold Pam over for a couple years!
Thanks again for everyone that helped donate flies to the Utah Casting for Recovery Retreat!
